So what is the

moral response to the imposition of tyranny? I ask because it is a complicated question and I honestly don’t know the answer to it. BUT, we are facing that question. And each of us will have to make a call one way or the other. Make your choice.

Is it “Turn the other cheek” or is it [Luke 22:36], “But now… he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.”

So what is Christ saying, here? Just what is the right and moral thing for us to do at a given point? And how will we know if we are there? At what point does self-defense slide into immorality? What is the dividing line? Is it attitude and not actions per se? I wish I knew…
